Gayndah personality grows his mo’ for charity

A LOCAL personality’s rugged new look has been turning heads on the main drag of this North Burnett town, for all the right reasons.

Gayndah hospital resident Ross Dyer has been growing his fashionable handlebar moustache for Movember, and held a charity stall in town to raise funds.

The table was set up outside the Gayndah newsagency on Capper St, selling everything from plants, food bags and gifts to lucky numbers to raise money.

Hospital worker Amy Ezzy said Mr Dyer’s moustache had started gaining popularity around town in the past few months.

“November rolled around and everyone suggested on raising money for Movember, and that’s how it started,” Mrs Ezzy said.

“The fundraising was going a bit slow at that time, so we decided to hold this street stall to promote it, and it’s been excellent so far.”

She said Mr Dyer loved getting out and about and meeting people, so it was the perfect opportunity to raise money.

Saying g’day to passers by, he confessed to The Times he loved his moustache, saying he’d been growing it for quite a while.

“I look like a bikie, it’s great,” Mr Dyer said.
